the legendary design team charles and ray eames made films, houses and classic midcentury modern furniture. eames demetrios, their grandson, recently showed rarely seen films and archival footage in a lively, loving tribute to their creative process.

eames spends his time ensuring that the eames designs are done right communicating and preserving the eames work. the design process itself is a passion of his and he has given many lectures around the world including TED talks which focus on bringing together people from technology, entertainment and design.
